ecb comprehensive of assessment only during these first months of 2013. realizing, our end. seven out of the nine banks, which did not pass the end of 2013, they already have in place measures that help them become pliant with the stress tests. i would say it's a matter of timing, of course. and it is important to understand, it is released and all of the banks, even a couple of others were compliant with the ecb and only to the stress test that we know they are very, very difficult to imagine. do wend these scenarios,
4:07 am
have the banks that did pass. >> can you answer very quickly before we go to break, do you think the results of these tests will produce a wave of consolidation within italy and will banca populare di milano be part of the consolidation? >> i agree. everybody is thinking that it should be -- it could bring consolidation. we have much more fragmented and maybe it will be important to the country. we only have -- [indiscernible] we feel that it could happen. as you know i'm a italy is a very vehicle your banking -- peculiar with banking with banca populare di milano and it may add some problem. but i think something will the bankd of course,

4:12 am
terms. it isn't in a -- it is in real money. the police principal pradesh italy's visible problem -- ita principle problem is no real growth. >> the stress test, is a good enough you are only looking at adverse scenarios of 0.3% and when you ask the ecb's vice president why they do not look at deflation away with me for the bank, his response is, we do not do that because we do not expect to happen. is it good enough? >> everybody recognize on historic data and what we're trying to do is join to end up with a picture that we could collaborate with the evidence on the ground. the stress test was broadly good news. for companies like deutsche bank and commerce bank and not great news for companies like lloyd's.
4:13 am
